Another Happy Day

Director: Sam Levinson

F31454

Narrative Feature |  USA |  2011 |  HDCAM |  118 MIN

Synopsis

High-strung Lynn and her three troubled children journey deep into the heart of domestic darkness and primal family dynamics to attend the wedding of her eldest son. While a feud rages on with the family she left behind, the line between victims and victimizers blur, as Lynn struggles desperately to protect herself and save her children from the furies raining down on them. Few films have tread the terrain of upper class family dysfunction with as much sensitivity, rawness and humor while so truthfully navigating the emotional minefields of unmet needs that span generations.
